A new historic era is underway in Egypt. President Hosni Mubarak has resigned and the military leadership is now running the country. When the announcement was made by the vice president, the massive crowd gathered in Cairo's Tahrir Square chanted "Egypt is free!"
On day 18 of the uprising, the demands of the anti-Mubarak protesters were finally met. 18 days later and after more than 300 deaths, according to Human Rights Watch, Mubarak's 30-year dictatorship is over.
But Mubarak, 82, has not left Egypt. According to reports, he's at his villa in the resort town of Sharm-el-Sheikh, along the Red Sea.
He's got a place to live, but he may face some money troubles. Just after it was announced Mubarak had stepped down, Swiss officials moved to freeze any of his assets in their banks and those belonging to anyone else tied to him.
Tonight on 360°, our panel of experts weigh in what may come next for Mubarak and the entire country. Egypt is not a democracy with the military in control. We'll show you whose at the helm now and look at whether the military will allow a fair election this fall?
You'll also hear from some of the most vocal Egyptian activists, including Wael Ghonim. The Google executive who's on leave from his job said the "real" heroes of the revolution are the people who took to the streets.
Ghonim also sent a Twitter message saying "Congratulations Egypt the criminal has left the palace."
At the White House, President Obama said, "The people of Egypt have spoken."
"Their voices have been heard, and Egypt will never be the same," he added.
Egypt’s dictator no longer has an iron fist. There's new leadership in place. Yet CNN's Arwa Damon is hearing some protesters may not leave Tahrir Square, saying they have other demands. They want to put Mubarak on trial. Others say they will go home and help put the country back together again.
